Graduation is a rite of passage from one part of life to another and a time of celebration. It’s also a time for looking forward to creating a life for oneself and making some of the biggest changes in the 18 or so years of life experience.
Most of you have already graduated from high school, and many from college. As a gift to my cousin and to my nephew, both of whom are graduating from high school this week, I’m asking for your help in compiling life advice to a graduate.
What do you know now that you wish you’d known then? Looking back, what wisdom might have made a difference in your life if you knew it at 18 years of age?
What advice would you give to a high school graduate on how to live a happy, successful and meaningful life?
Feel free to answer the same question for what you would share with a college graduate too, but please specify either high school graduate or college graduate in your answer, if the answers are different. Also, please include the number of years since your graduation (high school or college).
Thank you in advance for your comments and for sharing your wisdom with others. I love our InspireMeToday.com community and I’m grateful that you’re a part of it.
